Reviewer: ATperzynski - - May 14, 2012
Subject: Fun and interesting read
As other reviewers have mentioned, there are other books giving a more complete history of universities. However, the focus on Abelard in this volume is deliberate. This book gives a glimpse into understanding universities from Abelard's point of view, and the point of view of his students. In that respect this book is somewhat unique and offers ideas about what universities can and should be in addition to ideas about what they were in the early days. The section on "Students and Teachers" near the end of the book is really quite fantastic.
Reviewer: wahlros - - January 7, 2008
Subject: Not Really About Abelard
Because this is part of THE GREAT EDUCATORS series,the author merely uses Abelard as the pretext for a much wider examination of the history of the Medieval university. Given the book's brevity, it might have worked better if the author had concentrated on those schools where Abelard taught. The author, unsurprisingly in a study from this time,has no sympathy for scholastic discourse nor any understanding of its achievements. The history and structure of the Medieval university has been better covered by Hastings Rashdall's UNIVERSITIES OF EUROPE IN THE MIDDLE AGES,which eventually will be available through the Internet Archive.
